Caring for children with cancer is one of the most technically and emotionally difficult areas in nursing. Not only are you dealing with children and adolescents who hurt, you must reassure and educate families, balance a multitude of other health care professionals, and keep up with ever-changing nursing practice and care. To help special nurses stay aware of the newest effective nursing practices, innovative therapeutic approaches, significant information trends, and most practical research in hematology and pediatric oncology nursing, you need the Journal of Pediatric Oncology Nursing

The journal offers pediatric hematology, oncology, and immunology nurses in clinical practice and research, pediatric social workers, epidemiologists, clinical psychologists, child life specialists and nursing educators the latest peer-reviewed original research and definitive reviews on the whole spectrum of nursing care of childhood cancers, including leukemias, solid tumors and lymphomas, and hematologic disorders.
